Dear All,
I have purchased sun voucher(retake offer).
i have some questions:
1- do we have to take the original exam before 15/8/2006?
2- the expiry date of the voucher ends 30/6/2007,so does it mean that the retake offer is not valid on it?
3- how do i grantee that i will take the retake exam,as i have only 1 voucher?
thanks in advance,

Hi Rosaline,
If you get voucher before Aug 15 of this year. You will have one year to take exam and any time if you fail to make it first time, you can retake the exam. Aug 15, 2006 is the date for getting voucher not for taking exam. You have enough time to take exam. Only thing is make sure you apply discount code mentioned in sun site for retake feature.

I just checked with the Sun Educational Services in Bangalore. It seems the offer is not valid in India. They say they don't offer it in india because they have not increased the price of certification. One of the reasons they have introduced it in other countries is they have increased the price of the certification. I am very upset after coming to know about this

Hi Rizwan,
thanks for your reply,
I have just checked with SUN,and they told me that the first exam must be taken before 15 August 2006,otherwise it will be a normal voucher that is valid for 1 exam...

Ah! I dont think that is the case.
This is the message from Sun site..
Now its all new message.. It says offer is extended till Sep 30 instead of Aug 15th..

Purchase a voucher for most Java technology or Solaris OS certification exams between July 1 and September 30, 2006, and should you need it, you can take the exam one additional time for free. The retake exam must be taken by August 15, 2007 the following year. This offer is available in most countries around the world.

Nowhere it is mentioned that we need to take exam before Aug 15(Sep 30). It is said retake exam feature will be available till Aug 15, 2007.
I surprised with Sun's answer to you. Still not sure whether that is correct or not?

More details are here
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
